  1. My aunt Catherine Chrysler (married Derick) is a metis. Catherine born in RiceBurg Quebec . Her ancestors were William Chrysler (Cristler) and Bests. there was alot of travel to vermont and eastern townships. Catherine and her daughter Judy Derick had native traits. I can not find who in family married native person. Chrylser, Best, etc. any help would be great

  2. my great grandmother was Martha Rebecca Moncus Birth 24 Mar 1885 in Randolph, Alabama, USA. Her daughter Hattie Evie Duke my grandmother told us that Martha Rebecca Moncus was Indian & lived on Indian lands as a child in Clay or Randolph Co, Alabama. I have researched backwards 4 generations with Winchester Moncus 1847 – 1912 as my gg grandfather, Joseph L. Moncus 1820 – 1916 as my ggg grandfather with Benjamin Moncus Birth 1820 in RAndolph, Randolph, Alabama, as my gggg grandfather WHO MARRIED NATIVE AMERICAN…I have found Moncus names here & there with the Native American tag with no records to show until descending ancestor William Martin Moncus had in his death certificate his face as CANADIAN..he is a 1st cousin 4x removed Birth 26 Jan 1851 in Heflin, Cleburne, Alabama, United States Death in Texas, USA .. I would appreciate any info that would confirm or disprove that this meant NATIVE AMERICAN OF A Canadian tribe. I thank you in advance for your help.
